From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Zavanelli maneuver is an obstetric maneuver that involves pushing back the delivered fetal head into the birth canal in anticipation of performing a cesarean section in case of shoulder dystocia. It is performed only after other maneuvers have failed as it is associated with high risk to both the mother and the fetus.[1]
